Disinhibitory psychopathology encompasses a broad range of traits and behaviors, which are epitomized by psychopathy, externalizing, and substance abuse.
In this talk, I will focus on recent research specifying the cognitive-affective mechanisms responsible for the disinhibited behavior of psychopathic individuals.
Together these studies offer promise for changing neural and behavioral patterns, even for what many consider to be the most recalcitrant treatment populations. Such findings presage a new era of translating cognitive-affective science into increasingly specific and effective interventions for disinhibited individuals.
